I recently had the utmost pleasure to do some wandering around Wicker Park with a friend of mine who also takes amaaaazing photographs, Alyssa McElheny. If you haven’t ever checked out her work, head on over to her website. There are a lot of photographers out there, but Alyssa’s work has just something extra going on that I can’t really explain. I think what my favorite thing about her style is that besides giving a natural and beautiful feel to any situation, you can tell when Alyssa gets that artist excitement about a moment, and HAS to capture it. Her photos become a series of moments that show real emotion, and they’re simply mesmerizing. This lady will make you look your best, effortlessly.
Needless to say, I was thrilled when she agreed to take some shots for me for the blog! AND I got to show her around Wicker Park (separate post of my favorite places coming soon!). Here’s just a few of the photos she snapped of me during our outing!

Thanks for making me feel so beautiful, Alyssa!
Give her some love folks. She’s willing to travel and speaks Spanish!
